Kidnapping readers

I feel bad enough for never having read Stevenson’s Kidnapped after the sister-in-law lent it to me five years ago. Now I feel worse.

A total of 25,000 free copies of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Kidnapped are to be distributed throughout Edinburgh next month. The books will be handed out free to everyone from coffee shops to schools and libraries in a bid to get as many people as possible reading the same book at the same time.

The full text of the article is here. And more information about Kidnapped here. And Stevenson here and here.
